    5.25 To HDD Converter

    Probably a stupid question but I want to know if there is something i can buy which will allow me to place my hard drive in a 5.25 bay. I know they have IcyBox and other things like this but they all seem to have something on the front like a temp display or something. I jus want something that will let me store my hard drive in a 5.25 bay which will be covered by the bezel for that bay so you wont know there is a hard drive behind it...if you know what i mean...

    theres quite a few out there. as Steve pointed out. you can either get some cheapo brackets for around £2-3 or some anti vibration or dampner types for around £5-7. even Zalmon do a heatsink type one for about £9.

    Did you see Steve B's link?

    Thats about as cheap as you will get from a real store, eBay might be cheaper though.

    Or there is this from Maplin: Maplin > Hard Disk Drive Fixing Kit

    If you want a silencing or cooling adapter, you are going to be a lot more, £22 is pretty good for that case.

    That Scythe one looks like a good price, the plain metal one are a few £ a piece and that would be a lot better.
